Lettering a magazine spread about Skillshare

Hi all!

For our upcoming issue of the Turn The Page Magazine in Holland: An English full colour magazine for Industrial Design engineers of the University of Technology in Delft, I am writing an article about Skillshare. And what would be more fun to do, then actually hand-lettering the spread and title when reviewing :)?! That's why for this project I chose the phrase "Learning new skills online with Skillshare." It's a short and informating sentence that could be perfectly used as the title of the article. 

WORDLIST:

After brainstorming words that related to my phrase I started researching on pinterest and google to find images that could visualy represent it and could help me with inspiration for style/lettering. I wanted it to be inspirational, fun and not so serious, since the sentence otherwise might be a little boring. 

This is what I found:

MOODBOARD:

LETTERING WARM UP:

I really like the script fonts for the word 'Skillshare' because this font feels more creative then the other ones. I like the serif font too, maybe I use ut for the other words.

THUMBNAILS:

Since I the magazine has quite a rectangular shape, it was hard for me to work on the thumbnails. Nothing seems to fit in these rectangles! I like the idea of the computer, but maybe not with the whole screen. Also I like the pencil and the books but I'm not sure these represent the phrase well enough. Lets combine some things and ideas together!

SKETCH:

This is my first sketch! I'm already quite happy with it but it only still looks a little boring. I like the idea of the mouse, maybe I need one more? Also the composition on the right side of the drawing doesn't seem to fit yet. I'm open for feedback! :)

More pictures and progress will be coming soon! Looking forward recieving your feedback!
